The short version:
Vacation was revived with lots of alcohol all day long and sitting by the side of the pool for 6 hours. Traveling with 4 kids isn’t THAT bad, I guess.
The long version:
We woke with a renewed sense of…. peace. Wait. What am I writing? Weirdo. Anyhow… the day started pretty good. We headed to breakfast and felt confident in our abilities to get around this huge resort. It’s not really THAT huge once you figure it out but your first or second day it just feels… crazy. chaotic. So, breakfast it was. We had cereal and yogurt and pancakes and french toast and fruit and orange juice. YUM. We went back to the room, sunscreened up and then headed to the pool.
The days actually seem kind of short here. By 5pm its getting shady and the sun is setting. We went back to the room around 4:30 and everyone showered and got dressed for dinner. We walked to the shopping mall near the resort and the kids played on the playground and rode the merry go round. I bought an ornament for our vacation, and then we went to dinner.
We watched the kids show after dinner. Amelia and Angela (her little friend from Chicago) ran back stage to get in on the show. I about died laughing when they came out. Clearly the kids who went to kids club and practiced the dance came out first (all dressed like cats). They sent out Amelia and Angela (who had no clue what the dance was), out later… they had these huge fuzzy hats on their heads, black body suits and Amelia could barely see through the fuzzy hat. She looked like a deer in headlights coming out, trying to figure out how to see. I was dying laughing.
Amelia: mom, what am I allergic to?
Amelia: I feel like I'm allergic to paper
Amelia: "Don't pick that plant. It's a confusing plant. I mean, it's a poison ivy plant. But it looks really pretty!!"
